Amor Eterno Arte presents the opening reception of Dosayan with artwork by Luis Marroquin from 7-11 pm on Saturday August 9, 2014.
Luis Marroquin presents a body of work of carved skateboards and their physical prints. These intricately carved skateboards transcend into another life. Inspired by the energy that surrounds us, Luis explores natural, ancestral, and human images. Luis is an essential catalyst in the East Bay and SF communities. Not only is an artist, Luis is a voice and organizer for the real need that affect children and elders. Dosayan, a prayer for peace and unity, flows through Luis’ work. Precious stones and mementos inset in each skateboard where chosen from a lifetime of experiences with family, the community and artist friends sharing their creativity. Luis explores balance and what that means to us surrounded by the injustices of our consumerism drowned society.
